It has been some time since Microsoft announced officially the Roslyn project – the new .NET compiler for C# and VB.NET for the upcoming Visual Studio version. Roslyn is not just a compiler but also a platform that provides Visual Studio users with essential features that will speed up their work, e.g. real time code analysis, quick fixes, refactorings, navigations. At the same time it will be extendable to the point that users will have the ability to build the productivity tool for Visual Studio that best meets their needs.
